What works

Install and runs in a clean prefix out of the box.

Few starting missions from the campaign.

Cutscenes and menus when not in a mission.

Saving and reloading the game.

What does not

I have not played it on Windows, but the frame rate is stupidly low. Especially when you are in the menus during a mission.

My GPU is not recognized by the game. That is NVidia Quadro K4200 displayed as NVidia GTX 470.

My profile shows as offline while I have a stable internet connection...


What was not tested

Quality of the visuals(Windows vs Linux).



Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia

Arch Linux performance

You should know the nvidia performance on arch is the really REALLY unstable thing. If you want to use Linux for gaming, you should use ubuntu instead. The latest nvidia drivers for Arch are often has a serious performance drops.
